Santiago General Cemetery
All but two Presidents of Chile can be found here – most notably Salvador Allende – along with artist Violet Vine and Los Jaivas musician Eduardo Alquinta. A more emotionally-charged memorial, however, is the Memorial del Detenido Desaparecido y del Ejecutado Político, built in 1994 for the victims of Pinochet´s dictatorship who mysteriously and tragically disappeared.
It´s not uncommon to see hundreds of scattered bouquets of flowers that have been placed by the graves here and there throughout the cemetery. Keep an eye out for telltale signs of earthquake damage, such as cracked stones and lopsided angles.
